I love the color scheme of the book: brown, yellow, and red.
The page I chose to make something from was this one when the baby bird says, “I did have a mother. I know I did. I have to find her. I will. I will.” I thought the grumpy bird face goes well with a cute baby.
What I did was take a white piece of fleece and cut it to cover the logo on the used onesie.
Then I traced the bird onto a piece of paper and pinned it to the fleece and onesie.
Then I just sewed around the lines with my machine. It wasn’t perfect but you can still tell what it is. Then I ripped of all the paper. I found that the shorter my stitch length, the easier it was to rip off the paper. Then I zigzagged around the edge of the fleece.
I love seeing it on my son. I’m glad that he doesn’t really care what I dress him in and that he doesn’t have to find his mother.
I think he’s pretty good at doing the same eyebrows as the bird. This eyebrow expression is a classic face.
